What Clients Have to Say
Daniela West, https://thehumanista.co: I came to Christa at a time when I felt at a crossroads in my life and career. I felt stuck and unfulfilled in my job and I knew I wanted to go in a more creative direction in my work, but I was unsure where to even start or what to do with myself. Once we started working together, I felt this lightbulb moment where my greater vision for myself came out after just two sessions! I realized how much of a natural entrepreneur I am, and how I thrive the most when I feel completely free to do my work in the way that I choose. Christa believed in me and my creative abilities from the very start, way before I realized what my gifts even are. As a result of our work together, I revived my original business idea to start working as a brand strategist and web designer, I quit my day job that was completely draining me, and I have never felt more confident or clear about my own vision for myself! No dream or idea was too farfetched for Christa, and this helped me think bigger than I ever have before. You've honestly changed my life and my own perspective of what's possible for myself.
Chelsea P. I chose to work with Christa because I felt lost in my career and was facing serious burnout from working a job with long hours and high stress. With Christa’s guidance, I was able to gain more clarity on my values and purpose and how I could find a career path that aligned with those values. I stopped spending all of my energy at a job that no longer served me, and instead took steps towards achieving my next goals. My favorite part of our work together was her energy and enthusiasm for helping me navigate my career and personal life in a time where I felt stuck. I could not have gotten to where I am today without working with her and can’t believe all that I learned and changed over the past year. She empowered me to make the changes I wanted to see and gave me the tools for future success. As a result of coaching, I gained clarity on how to tie my personal values into my career, learned how to overcome self-doubt and imposter syndrome, and I quit my job to move to a new city and pursue my dream of obtaining an MBA!
Maura Before working with Christa, I was at a turning point in my life and I felt as if I hit rock bottom and I didn’t know what my next steps should be. I felt stuck at work and I was looking to either go back to graduate school or to apply for a more challenging position. I thought I knew exactly who I was but Christa really delved into aspects of my personality and life I was overlooking or didn’t want to fully confront. In our coaching together, Christa was never judgmental or prescriptive in her approach and I really appreciated that. She took a holistic approach to life and career and I would extend Christa’s “career/leadership coach” title to a “life guru.” There is nothing off limits and I really discovered who I was and what I could do in my life with her guidance. I really noticed a difference in my approach to many aspects of my life and since I started working with her, I have traveled abroad alone, I’m moving to a new city to go to my top choice grad school program, and I landed my dream job! I am embracing these changes rather than being hesitant and living in the past (as I was doing before). I could not recommend her coaching enough. I am in a great place in my life and, while Christa didn’t make these changes for me, she supported me wholeheartedly and I am so incredibly appreciative.
Courtney Hall, www.lifestoocourt.com: Before starting to work with Christa, I was dissatisfied with my job because it wasn’t what I had originally set out to do with my career. Naturally, I assumed that the solution to my problem was to find a new job in a field more in line with what I thought I "should" be doing. However, after coaching began, I realized that the source of my unhappiness at work wouldn’t be solved simply by finding a new job, and rather, I was meant to take much bigger risks by starting my own business. Through coaching, Christa challenged my thinking and the alternative options she presented were eye opening, which opened the door to so many other possibilities. It was through these moments of clarity that helped me to gain the confidence I needed to take more risks and shed what was holding me back. Through coaching, we identified ways to redirect my energy toward something more fulfilling, which has led to dramatic changes in my life. As a result, I quit my job, started my own business, pursued a new field of work and moved to a different country! I highly recommend Christa if you are interested in identifying your own soul-aligned passion- or maybe you already know it and just need guidance to get you there!
Lizzie When I first started working with Christa, I wasn’t happy in my job, and was anxious for a change. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted - whether to figure out how to make my job work better for me or to leave and find something new. I felt stuck. Not only did Christa help coach me into a new role, which I’m so excited about (With a 70% raise to match)! She also walked me through ways to make my old job work better for me. I was able to create healthy boundaries that improved both my personal and professional life. I was able to identify ways that I was contributing to my malaise and feeling stuck. I was able to identify what works and what doesn’t work for me when it comes to my job. All of this helped me realize that it was time to move on, and Christa helped me push myself to a role that I wouldn’t have thought I’d be qualified for previously and coached me through every step. I think everyone deserves to be in a job that fulfills something in them, and work with someone like Christa can help you accomplish that. I am so grateful for our work together and how you’ve helped me grow. I’m no longer afraid of leaving my job or afraid of starting a new one that will challenge me. I have you to credit for that.
Jackie F. In transitioning to a leadership role, I wanted Christa’s help in developing my perception of what makes a great leader and how to get there, as well as overcoming insecurity in stepping into this new role. Through coaching, I was able to become more aware of my inner critic and stress levels at work and now have the tools to manage them and lead. I have much more confidence in my capabilities to lead a team and know exactly what to do when I start feeling lost. Christa is pretty much your modern fairy godmother . She gives you the confidence to be who you are in the workplace and transforms your self-perception to one that is truthful, powerful, and proud. I’ve learned that I can be my own type of leader, rather than any stereotype. By listening and tailoring her coaching, Christa helped me achieve many personal and career goals. Long after our sessions were over, I still have all the tools needed to stay focused and prioritized.
